Spring Cleaning Checklist

I can’t believe it is almost March.  The time is flying by.  I have spend last ten weeks decluttering clutter from my whole house and now it’s time to move on to some Spring Cleaning.  I like to start first week of March even though there is over 30cm of snow on the ground right know since we got the biggest storm of winter last night.  Perfect time for me to write this post. 

It usually takes me a while to get through the whole house because I clean couple spaces a week since I don’t have a whole weekend to dedicate to Spring cleaning my whole house.  

I also like to clean my windows inside and out during spring cleaning but for now I will only be cleaning them on the inside since my cleaning supplies might freeze if I spray them on the outside, so I will do the outside windows probably closer to the end of April.

And I would not be Spring Cleaning without a check list.  I will also have a free printable checklist for you that you can print out for your own use.
